Bacon Concept Sketch #1

Here is round one of new Bacon Samurai concept sketches for the game as well as the series. Today we have Bacon in all his glory.

He may not look that different from the trailer, but this new design has a more detailed face, new belt, and different proportions (longer legs, bigger feet, and larger arms). His side view also doesn't look like crap this time, which is good as this is the view people will be seeing the most of in the game.

I should have more up this weekend, so check back regularly.

Olympus Burger Needs Your Support!!!

Hey, it's Ken, just dropping you a note that OLYMPUS BURGER IS IN THE RUNNING FOR $5000! This could be a huge boost for us at Moving Box, and would help pay for the modifications to our new studio.

Here's the deal:
Send a Text message to STAGE (78243), with the message "ANIMAT06"

Here's a link:

IMPORTANT!! This text message will cost 50 cents, instead of the typical 10 cents most cell phone providers charge. This goes to OurStage, to help fund their website and these contests. If you can swing half a dollar for us, it could provide a tremendous help.

Thanks for reading this through.

Repentance Credits

Yo I like where you are going with it. The black and white totally works well. I don't know about the three other crosses in the frame. I am sure they are not in the credits and are just there for some reason, but other than that it looks awesome. Good work, cant wait to see it finished.
